Nueske’s celebrates 85 years

February 2018_selected-pages_Page_1Today, Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Meats remains located in its hometown of Wittenberg, Wisconsin, and continues to be operated by the Nueske family, now in its third generation of business. Instead of being sold only regionally, Nueske’s has expanded greatly since its inception and now has distributors and a loyal following of chefs and food-lovers across the nation.

Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Specialties are well-known for their sweet, rich smokiness and consistently high quality- something that can only be acquired through the time and patience taken to slowly smoke their hand-selected cuts of meat over glowing embers of genuine applewood. Slabs of Nueske’s bacon are hand-trimmed and smoked over applewood logs for a minimum of 24 hours, allowing the signature smoky flavor of Nueske’s to develop and permeate the entire cut of meat.

Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Meats are proven winners in taste tests time after time. They have been recognized at the national level with a whopping six gold medals for taste and quality from the prestigious Specialty Food Association. Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Bacon has been mentioned in almost 100 books and cookbooks in the past decade, not to mention full articles in The New York Times and Chicago Tribune.

Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Meats are served at fine dining establishments, steakhouses, cafes and bistros across the country. You can also find them at many specialty grocers and fine delis. Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Meats are available across the U.S. by mail order at
